Killer Instincts series by Elle Kennedy. While the books weren’t absolutely fabulous individually, the series all together is. I’ve never had that experience, so it was new to me. There were even some main characters that I didn’t like. Kennedy has a gift for making the reader go from love to hate back to love again.
Masters and Mercenaries by Lexi Blake. I discovered this series quite by accident. When Ian showed up in Revenge, I knew he had to have his own book somewhere. He was too alpha not to. Lucky for me, I found that I was right. Masters and Mercenaries is a D/s series. At first I was a little put off while reading the series, but I have grown to love this series, D/s and all.
Sisters of the Heart by Christine Feehan. I adore this series. The five women that were brought together through circumstance created a bond that can’t be broken. It really tells the story of a family that isn’t related by blood, but are closer than blood relatives. All the women were damaged in their own way.
Vampires in America by D.B. Reynolds. D.B. Reynolds, where has this series been my entire reading life? I don’t know how I missed the Vampires in America, but miss it I did.
Black Dagger Legacy by J.R. Ward. I am really enjoying this spinoff of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I daresay that it’s better than the BDB series. It’s a fresh look into the world that JRW created what seems like ages ago.
Kate Daniels by Ilona Andrews: I can’t wait for the next book to be released..and at the same time I’m dreading it because it’ll be the last.
Mercy Thompson by Patricia Briggs: Briggs never disappoints. Every time I pick up a Mercy book I feel like I’m joining good friends.
Moonshadow by Thea Harrison: This is a spinoff of the Elder Races series. I love how broad the world is. I can’t wait for the next book.
Magdalene by Kristen Ashley: If you’re looking for small-town romance, this is a great series.
Brooklyn Bruisers by Sarina Bowen: Sexy Hockey players.. smart, independent women…good stuff.
Psy-Changeling/Trinity by Nalini Singh: I really love the Psy-Changeling series and I’m excited to see where things head now.
Honorable Mentions: The Innkeeper Chronicles by Ilona Andrews. It gets an honorable mention because the most recent book was released in 2016. But there’s a new chapter up at Ilona-Andrews.com! Maud! EEEE. Moonlight and Motor Oil by Kristen Ashley. I didn’t love book one, but I enjoyed it enough that I’m anticipating the next release. Alpha and Omega by Patricia Briggs. Anna and Charles. Sigh. Whiskey Sharp by Lauren Dane. The first book isn’t out until later this month, but I read it in 2017 so I’m including it here.
Brooklyn Bruisers series by Sarina Bowen: I just keep right on loving each book that comes out in this series. The first book, Georgia got on my hot damn nerves but not Leo. I loved him. Then I read Patrick’s book and loved it and then Beacon and Lauren’s book and gah. I loved that one too. Sarina Bowen is such a great author or contemporary romances. I just love this series to pieces.
The Disgraceful Dukes series by Lenora Bell: This was a delightful discovery for me. I first heard about it from one of my blog buddies and tried it out after my sister read the first book and really enjoyed it so I got all of the books and I glommed them all in a week. All three books. There’s so much goodness in this series and I am looking forward to more greatness from Lenora Bell in the new year.
The WAGs series by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy: I really love reading sports romances and I’m really digging the whole world that Sarina & Elle have created for these characters. The characters, the hockey, the love, it’s all great. Just freaking great.
The Oxford series by Lauren Layne: I love this series and really enjoyed the latest addition. Nick and Taylor were a great couple and even though they weren’t perfect, their story was still pretty fantastic. I’m going to be really sad when this series ends because it continues to really shine in my eyes. So much love for this series.
The Royally series by Emma Chase: I didn’t know that I loved a royal romance until I read this series. Emma Chase really shines at writing the male perspective and she continues to do that well in this series. I really enjoyed all of the books in this series and cannot wait for the spin off series that will be releasing soon. Woo hoo for Tommy’s story!
